AllMusic Review by

Fans of Badalamenti's Twin Peaks scores are advised to look elsewhere. This lush string-laden soundtrack is deadly serious, without a hint of irony or guitar twang. A circus-of-the-damned calliope appears from time to time, and Marianne Faithfull intones the doleful "Who Will Take My Dreams Away?" The darkly somber tone is maintained throughout, leaving the listener desperate for more variation. Music to mourn lost children by.
